We are proud to continue our partnership with Robert Tucker, Honorary Associate of Berry Street, and Director of RGT Training & Consultancy based in the UK. Robert is an internationally renowned specialist working with children, young people and families where there are concerns about sexual abuse and inappropriate or harmful sexual behaviours.

Robert will be delivering a range of webinars for Education staff working in a school setting and for general practitioners. For a full list of Robert’s sessions click here.


This webinar is one in a series of webinars intended for professionals and caregivers working and caring for children and young people who display concerning sexual behaviour.

This session is targeted at those working or caring for pre-pubescent children. There are separate sessions specifically targeted to working with adolescents, whilst there is an overlap of content they are focused on specific age groups.

This introductory webinar will help participants identify the differences between age-expected and problematic sexual behaviour, when to seek specialist support and considers possible causes in the development of problematic or harmful sexual behaviour. There is a further webinar called ‘Beyond the Basics: sexual behaviour problems in pre-pubescent children’ which considers issues relating treatment, therapeutic care and risk management focusing on children.

Please note: there are separate sessions specifically targeted at education staff working in a school setting.
